Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go Core i5

84.6% Microsoft Surface Laptop Go Review: An Overpriced Netbook | Notebookcheck
Are you happy with just 4 GB of soldered RAM and 64 GB of storage? If so, then the $550 USD Surface Laptop Go might be worthwhile. For everyone else, look elsewhere and don't turn back.
90% Microsoft Surface Laptop Go review: The notebook for writers and bloggers
Source: The Indian Express English EN→zh-CN
From the moment I started working on the Surface Laptop Go, I have fallen in love with it. The fact that it’s small and lightweight, and also has a full-size keyboard, and is powerful enough to get the work done makes the Surface Laptop Go winner for writers and journalists. Yes, it is a little pricey, but you are paying the premium price for the Surface brand.

Although there are some quirks - such as a whistly fan, a low numbers of ports, and limited storage in the entry-level model - otherwise the balance of features and performance make for a compelling affordable laptop.

Surface Laptop Go: Premium feel for a mid-range price, but Microsoft's Apple-like range once meant more than this
Source: The Register English EN→zh-CN
The other is that Microsoft's effort to reinvent Windows as a touch-friendly operating system to rival the iPad has utterly failed. We rarely see a Surface device used without a keyboard, and Windows 10 retreated (by necessity) from the Windows 8 vision.

With the Surface Laptop Go, Microsoft has tried to make an affordable laptop for the masses – or at least for students. While performance and battery life are underwhelming, the laptop is well built and designed, and will serve you well for day-to-day computing.

The middle-ground model seems like the best value, but even then there's no shortage of keenly-priced alternatives. Still, if you don't mind paying a premium for good design, even when on a mid-range budget, the Go's styling is tough to beat.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go review – good quality ultrabook for students
Source: Laptop Media English EN→zh-CN
Before saying anything, we want to address something. The “Education” version of this notebook has a model, equipped with only 4GB of memory and 64GB of eMMC storage. If you want our advice – stay away from this configuration. 4GB is not nearly enough for a Windows 10 system, and you will be stuck with the S version, because of the lack of RAM upgradeability. Also, the eMMC storage is multiple times slower than the SSD inside of our unit, which reached Read/Write speeds of 2028/822 MB/s – something respectable for a laptop of this caliber.

The Surface Laptop Go is a fantastic device at a super-affordable price. It offers decent performance and comfortable keyboard that's ideal for students, office workers and social media addicts alike. The low-resolution display means it isn't the best for streaming Netflix, but it will be tough to find better value elsewhere.

Surface Laptop Go: A Surface for even more places
Source: On MSFT English EN→zh-CN
Thankfully, because of consolidation on I/O peripherals, I was able to power an entire workstation that included a secondary monitor, microphones, speakers, webcam, external hard drives, and wireless chargers, all without a hitch using a single USB-C dongle. If you’re looking to replace or build a workstation at home for anything shy of production or engineering level workflows, the Surface Laptop Go is a decent alternative and helps to fill in the gaps in Microsoft’s personal computing ethos that emphasizes ‘surfaces everywhere.’

The Surface Laptop Go Is A Beautiful Budget Laptop With A Hollow Interior
Source: Reviewed.com English EN→zh-CN
If you want a premium-looking laptop with insane battery life and you have toddler-sized hands, this is a good laptop for you. Despite its humble sub $600 price tag, it drips of the same premium build quality that the rest of the Surface lineup has had since its inception. Beyond the (ahem) surface, the Surface Laptop Go has a reasonably powered Intel Core i5 mobile processor that will do for emails, social media, and some video streaming. It's a shame that you'll have to settle for watching your videos in less than 1080P, with the fans blowing at full speed for little reason.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop Go review: Another shrunk-down Surface
Source: It Pro English EN→zh-CN
We think Microsoft can chalk this up as another successful downsizing: although the Surface Laptop Go’s cutbacks are more frequently felt than on the Surface Go 2, it’s still clearly a laptop that’s been crafted with care. That said, it’s important not to get carried away thinking the Surface Laptop Go is a budget masterpiece; with this model’s For Business bonuses, it’s only a few notes less expensive than a mid-spec Surface Laptop 3. Personally, we’d be more tempted by the next model down from this, which is identical save for having 8GB of RAM, yet represents a hefty £168 saving before VAT.

Surface Laptop Go Review: Best mini laptop you shouldn’t buy

Frankly, the pricing is the most disappointing part of the Laptop Go. There is almost no reason to spend this much money on what the Laptop Go offers. Anyone looking to get something similar can find a cheaper, better version from another PC-maker like Acer.

Surface Laptop Go review: Microsoft delivers a decent budget PC
Source: Good Gear Guide English EN→zh-CN
Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go is a solid budget laptop reaching for good rather than great. Until Intel and its partners manage to push its 11th-gen Tiger Lake notebooks out the door, this really is the time of AMD’s mobile Ryzen. A laptop like our Editor’s Choice-winning $655 Acer Swift 3-SF314-42-R9YN is still available, and even some grumbling about thermals on Amazon’s product page shouldn’t turn you off. Walmart’s Motile M142, at $500, was also surprisingly good. Acer’s Spin 3 offers a third choice, which you can buy from Costco for $650. It too, outperforms the Surface Laptop Go, and for a lower price.

Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go is the newest in their smaller, cheaper "Go" line. The Surface Laptop is impressively light, though this is partly due to a plastic base. It feel sturdy, but less premium than the all-aluminum laptops many folks are used it.

Surface Laptop Go Review: Microsoft’s Value Play Delivers
Source: Hot Hardware English EN→zh-CN
For $100 less, the 256 GB version of the Surface Laptop Go could have been a huge win for Microsoft, but in the end we think most users would be better off saving some cash and getting the 128 GB model at $699. There's enough performance on tap and storage for the apps most people need without breaking the bank on a high-end portable. For that reason, we'll tip the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go with our Recommended Award. Just keep in mind that we think its midrange configuration is the best value in the Surface Laptop Go line-up, for most people other than power users.

60% Surface Laptop Go Review: A Case Study In Cost Cutting
Source: The Verge English EN→zh-CN
It’s understandable to cut corners for a good price. Some (like the lack of facial recognition) are understandable at $900. But this laptop doesn’t fit into today’s market. It’s too expensive to compete in the budget space, and it makes too many compromises to rise to the top of the midrange. When it goes on sale, maybe take another look.

I admire the concept behind the Surface Laptop Go. We too often shine the spotlight on the most expensive products when most consumers can get a perfectly capable laptop for under $1,000. What the Surface Laptop Go brings to the table is one of, if not the most, elegant designs in this price range. A few trade-offs were made to keep the price down, but those don't prevent the Surface Laptop Go from feeling any less expensive than the MacBooks and XPSs of the laptop world.

Source: Slashgear English EN→zh-CN
If, however, you’re willing to spend a little extra to treat your fingertips to a fantastic keyboard and trackpad, or on elevated industrial design that looks and feels a cut above that of most similarly-priced notebooks, the Surface Laptop Go makes more sense. Like other members of the Surface family, this newest model isn’t necessarily for everyone. Instead, it’s for those who can afford to budget for the areas where Microsoft has clearly focused the most.

That said, you can find other potentially better budget-friendly options out there. We especially like the Editors-Choice-winning IdeaPad Flex 5 for its extraordinary blend of value and computing power. Meanwhile, if you can spend just $300 or so more than the asking price of the Surface Laptop Go configuration reviewed here, you can consider a cornucopia of excellent midrange ultraportables, including the 13-inch Surface Laptop 3 and the lowest-end MacBook Air.

So, should you buy one? I like the Surface Laptop Go, but it's not for everyone. Here's my advice. The $550 model has pitiable storage. Just 64GB, soldered onto the motherboard, and even less after accounting for the OS. Also, running Windows 10 with 4GB of RAM can make a $500 laptop feel like a $400 laptop. I'm surmising that, because I haven't actually tested the $550 version.

The Surface Laptop Go is a really nice little laptop, little being part of the value proposition. It's not just lightweight, but it's compact. I kind of love it. I called it my 'couch PC' earlier, and that's actually significant to me. I review PCs by using them to work. If I grab a laptop to use on the couch, that's all up to what I prefer in the moment.

I love the Surface Laptop Go as the sleek mid-range laptop that it almost is. You can get its great keyboard, elegant chassis and decent performance at a respectable price — if you choose the $699 model. Its display isn't bright enough, nor does its battery last as long, though, for the $900 model to make sense for most folks.

这个屏幕尺寸对于平板来说略大,而对亚笔记本来说稍小。一些变形本采用了这个尺寸的屏幕。

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
